Christmas Day!

Christmas Day was different this year with just "the little girls" here in PC with us.
 Since the married kids were spending Christmas with their in-laws, 
 we had our traditional Christmas Eve dinner with Allie and Justin when Kimber was here.
 Dad and I decided that we should let Ashley and Brooke choose the menu for our Christmas Eve dinner.
The girl wanted to change things up a bit and suggested that we have a taco bar.
 And just like that, our Christmas Eve party became a Feliz Navidad fiesta!
It was so fun and festive that we decided that we need to make it a new Holt Christmas tradition. 
 After dinner, it was time for our Christmas Eve Nativity program. 
 We thought about making the little girls act out the Nativity 
but with just two kids acting out all the parts,
we decided that it would require too many costume changes, 
so we opted for the bible videos about the birth of Christ. 
 Afterwards, we watched "A Christmas Story." 
 Always a favorite Christmas movie at the Holt household.
The next morning we went to the "visitor's ward" in Park City 
and enjoyed a beautiful program of music from the Spanish branch and one of the Park City wards.
Our favorite number was "Far far away on Judea's plain", sung in Spanish. It was beautiful!
We came home and took a few pictures with our favorite Snowman.
And of course, we had to get every combination.
Fortunately for Dad, there was only four of us so there were fewer possible combinations.
And lucky for me, he was patient enough to get a picture of the two of us together!
This is the 30th Christmas that we have spent together!
30 wonderful Christmases together and looking forward to many, many more!
